THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
God helps me carry my burdens.

Cast all your anxiety on [God], because he cares for you. – 1 Peter 5:7 (NRSV)

In high school, French was a difficult subject for me. I had little interest in it, and my teacher’s explanations were unclear to me; so I had difficulty in the course and received bad grades. Full of anxiety, I developed a hatred for the subject and prayed to God that I would never have to study it again.

When I was admitted to university, I learned that I was required to take multiple French courses. Fear gripped me, and I wondered how I would pass the classes. I prayed about my fears and asked God to make a way for me. I had full confidence that God would answer me.

After I had prayed, the Lord gave me courage and inspired in me an unexpected interest in French. I had an excellent French professor and received support from people around me. This, along with my constant trust in God, made learning easy. I excelled in my French courses and exams, and I even became a teaching assistant. It was a wonderful experience!

When we have problems or burdens and don’t know what to do, we can turn to God. When we lay our cares upon the Lord in prayer, God has promised to sustain us.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear God, strengthen us when we are afraid, and give us confidence to face the challenges before us. Amen.

PRAYER FOCUS
Students anxious about school
